Cox Homelife Key Features

To keep things simple, Cox Homelife offers only two packages: the Essential and Preferred packages. The Essential Package focuses on basic home security. The Preferred Package adds home automation like light and thermostat control. You can expand either of the two packages by adding other accessories.

The Cox Homelife app is simple to use and is your control center to view your personalized Cox Homelife system, remotely lock your front door, view camera live streams or look up past recordings (Preferred Package). Email and/or SMS alerts notify you when the system is triggered or detects unusual activity.

Cox Homelife equipment runs on batteries or has battery back-up so that your system continues to function, even during a power outage.

Cox Homelife Equipment and Benefits

The two packages come with equipment to protect, monitor and control the system. There are accessories available for purchase that expand the system’s capabilities. The Cox HomeLife app allows you and your family to monitor the system, and in the case of the Preferred Package, control your home’s automation and view video. Here are more details of what’s available:

Environmental Monitoring EquipmentA Cox homelife motion sensor

Both packages come with two window/door sensors and one motion sensor to protect your home from intruders, as well as window and yard signage warning intruders that your home is monitored.

You can also add:
